Watch the Beer Drinkin' online guitar lesson by Jeff McErlain from Play in the Style of Billy Gibbons

There is a great concert video from 1980 in Germany from the Rockpalast TV show. It's on YouTube of course or you can buy it as part of the 'Double Down Live' DVD. This is the band before their mega MTV success and my favorite period in their career. I also used it a source material for this course and it provided great insight into Billy's playing and technique. I would watch that DVD in conjunction with this course for some inspiration and it's also a ton of fun. Notice Billy's setup is just his 1959 Les Paul into a stack of Marshall amps. He never steps on a pedal or changes guitars (except for "Just Got Paid" as it's in open E tuning), all the tones are from his hands and rig. As I stated before, we live in a great time where we have courses like this and YouTube where we can see the artist playing up close and learn from it. I will say that this is never a replacement for being in the same room! GO and see the people you like if possible!
